A judge might deem it inadmissible, but if I were Radiohead's lawyers I would try to introduce evidence of examples of Lana borrowing from other songs. Obviously melodic examples like the Nino Rota thing and "Careless Whisper" (I think there are other examples I'm probably forgetting?) but also lyrics in order to try to demonstrate a pattern of behavior.

 

She credited Nino Rota

I'm afraid there's another fact that counts against Lana: she blatantly references Crowley, who was a creep.

 

The whole song is about a creep getting free.

The bottom line is that it going to court is to the detriment of musicians and music copyright in general. All of the intent and effect out the window, if its tried in America (and it would be) a Jury would decide this by a matter of hearing them and thinking they sound similar and not knowing enough about music, will decide its copyright infringement. 

 

I hope Lanas team and Radiohead's team do the right thing and decide it out of court.

Yeah, her team caught that one, but it's another example where she subconsciously plagiarized something and didn't realize it until afterwards when someone pointed it out to her. She seems particularly prone to this.

 

Stalking you has sorta become like my occupation.

"Remember when her album sales and critical scores decreased with every release so she made up a story about Radiohead suing her and fed it to her echo chamber social media fans for free publicity?"

Omg who said that? Haha
Anyways I really don't know why Lana isn't talking publicly about this anymore. Is she sued or not? Seems like she isn't but she needs to say something before getting bigger backlash for it. It's always exciting to stan ha!

If I hear correctly, it is about getting free from "the Crowley way of being".

 

I wonder, did she ever sing that part live? There are different lyrics on the internet.

Yeah she never said the actual outcome, so I've been wondering myself. Although during PWYC she said her "copyrights and melodies" so that may lead one to believe (with the get free quote) she won but she never explicitly said that she won. I want the details lol! We will probably never know though, oh well.

Good for Lana! I didn't watch the stream last night, did she just play the first half of the song again? I'd like to hear the full thing with the full band!

No, She sang the entire song and the band played along for the first time. Not accapella

Edit: When she was done she said "Well Fuck! Now that my lawsuit is over I can sing that song whenever I want now"
